- layout terminals in any fashion by splitting them horizontally or vertically
- terminals can be re-arranged using drag and drop both within and between windows;
- terminals can be detached into a new window via drag and drop;
- input can be synchronized between terminals so commands typed in one terminal are replicated to the others;
- the grouping of terminals can be saved and loaded from disk;
- rerminals support custom titles;
- color schemes are stored in files and custom color schemes can be created by simply creating a new file;
- transparent background;
- supports notifications when processes are completed out of view. Requires the Fedora notification patches for VTE.
The application follows the Gnome Human Interface Guidelines and as a result, it uses a header bar (client-side decorations), but there’s an option to disable it and use a traditional titlebar.
However, this didn’t work properly in my test under Ubuntu with Unity: after disabling CSD, the application window became completely transparent in both Ubuntu 15.10 and 16.04.
To disable client-side decorations in Terminix, install Dconf Editor:
Then launch DConf Editor, navigate to com > gexperts > Terminix and theck the box next to disable-csd.
